Amy Morin’s start to fame began as a complete surprise. Her blog post titled Thirteen Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do caught fire. Today she’s written multiple books, has podcasts, and is in-demand as a speaker. Why? Her message is needed and her delivery of her message is fantastic. I’ve met her and watched her work and I know you’ll love her story and her message as much as I do.
Todd McGehee won’t push his faith on you. He’s hired by local businesses to visit regularly and if you want to talk, he’ll talk, if you want to pray, he’ll pray with you.

And Todd brings a gentle, un-intimidating approach to God. His clients love him. You’ll like him, too. As promised, Todd’s email: email@example.com.
